lyrics

I grew up on easy street
I was a privileged kid
I laughed a lot and bragged a lot
About the things I did
I spent my money at the corner store
And behind that store I smoked some weed
And when I looked up at the clouds
I saw the shimmering face of Jesus


I fooled around at the old mill wall
With a girl who was proud of her puberty
As for me, I was a real late bloomer
So let’s just say she was unimpressed
But two years later I met her at a party
She could tell that I had changed
We locked ourselves in the bathroom
And everybody had to wait


I was sixteen when my best friend died
It was suicide
His folks were away on vacation
On a second honeymoon
He picked the lock on the gun rack
And went down into the basement
Stretched himself out on the sofa
With his favourite record on


I grew up on easy street
I guess I was a privileged kid
I laughed a lot and bragged a lot
About the things I did
I was a privileged kid
I was a privileged kid
